Pasta With Meat Recipe

Pasta With Meat a.k.a Pasta A-La-Sailor a.k.a Macaroni Po-Flotski

This recipe is Russian, and the Russian name of it is “Macaroni Po-Flotski” which translates as “Pasta A-La-Sailor”.  It is made with the items that are always around (pasta, ground meat and onion), so it’s one of those great “emergency meals” :)


Pasta (tubular shapes work best) – 1 lb
Ground beef or other ground meat – 2 lbs
2 onions, chopped.
Salt and pepper to taste


Cook the pasta according to package directions. 

Heat 1 tbsp of oil on a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.  Add the onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden-brown.  Add the ground meat, and cook, stirring occassionally, until no longer pink.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Optional step: process cooked ground meat and onion mixture in a food processor.

Heat another 2 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick frying pan.  Add cooked pasta and cooked ground meat and onion mixture.  Stir until the pasta is coated with oil and mixed with the ground meat.
